Follows Up After Visit
I saw him once about 14 years ago. I had just seen a public doctor with a nasty ear infection - have long history of those. Was trying to get a referral to an ENT.
First doctor I ever encountered who wanted copayment in advance. Dumb staff claimed it was insurance policy.
He came charging in room with his blood pressure cuff in toe & attacked me with it. Said my BP was high and I could come back on Friday. Said my ear was "just infected"- no ENT referral. Didn't care about my long history of ear infections.
I left, called his staff and told them that I wasn't dumb enough to fall for the claim that the insurance company made me pay in advance and that I needed more than a blood pressure cuff for care.
Then I hung up and called my insurance company for a new PCP immediately.
Yes, he followed up, or I think he did. That week I got notice of a certified letter, which I didn't bother to pick up. I think he sent me a termination letter.
Arrogant and dumb! Why would he think I'd come back to him?
There's someone worse in medical school waiting to replace him.
